We provide care for local children aged from 2 until they start school. Whilst the Pre-School is located within the grounds of Shebbear Primary School, it is a charity, run by a small, but dedicated committee of parents and volunteers and is not affiliated to the school. The Pre-School receives some funding from Devon County Council, and an hourly rate from parents for un-funded children. However, this money is not enough to cover the cost of running the Pre-School, so fund raising is vital to keeping this valuable community resource open, and this is where you can help.
What are we asking for?
We are asking for any good quality second hand clothing, soft toys, bedding, hats, belts and pairs of shoes you no longer want. These items will be passed on to ‘Bag 2 School,’ which is a company that specialises in good quality second hand items that can be re-used. ‘Bag 2 School’ will pay the Pre-School 50p for every kilo collected, so if you can fill more than one sack please do so because the more we can collect the better.
When do we need your donation?
Bag 2 school bags will have or be coming through your letter boxes in the next few days, if you do not receive one please contact Little Bears Pre School
Please place the items that you wish to donate in the enclosed sack outside your front door by 9:30am on Saturday 15th March 2014 ready for collection that day.
If you would like to help but are unable to leave your sack out for collection when we have asked, then please contact Helen Page Tel. 01409 281846.
Thank you for your help, it is greatly appreciated
